• Early Morning WWDC Photowalk

    Golden Gate Bridge

    San Francisco is a beautiful city, especially the Golden Gate Bridge. Let's do a photowalk in the early morning to capture the view at sunrise. Sunrise is at 5:47. Including time to set up, we should be at our location around 5:00–5:30. Things to consider bringing: camera, tripod, shutter release, warm clothes, gloves, cloth for condensation on lens, and a coffee/tea. Location is the Golden Gate Bridge Vista Point: http://goo.gl/maps/QS9ie – a bit of a trek to get to by transit, but it'll be worth it.

  • Test Jam!


    Last year, around this time, we ran a Bug Bash (http://blog.cocoapods.org/CocoaPods-Bug-Bash/) over a weekend. It went beautifully. We triaged a whole lot of issues, got a lot of minor issues fixed and found some new members for the core team. Not ones to repeat ourselves, we’ve begun preparations on the next big community event. It’s a test jam, and everyone is invited. TLDR/Elevator Pitch: If the community is going to move towards Swift, then let’s make sure that our Objective-C is in order by adding tests to established libraries. Realm will be hosting a Test Jam in San Francisco, where we can get together and participate in the CocoaPods Test Jam. Lunch and snacks will be provided. We have a special guest speaker Jon Reid, he's the creator OCHamcrest and OCMockito, the popular testing frameworks for Objective-C. Jon is going to be kicking off the event with a short talk on "Adding Tests to Legacy Code". For more info check the blog post (http://blog.cocoapods.org/Test-Jammin/).

  • Pod Roulette Hackathon

    Layer HQ

    Have you heard of pod-roulette (http://podroulette.com/)? If not, here's their elevator pitch: Just moved to the big city, got a seed investment but don't have an idea what to do next? Pod Roulette will find three random pods and prepare a project for you in a few seconds. After seeing this project, we knew that there should be a hackathon using this. And now there is: right after WWDC, on Saturday, June 7th 2014, we will meet at 10am and hack on our randomly determined projects until 5pm, then there will be presentations from 6pm to 7pm. Of course you can also come around and hack on something else, for example we can set you up with getting started to contribute to CocoaPods itself. The hackathon will be hosted at Layer HQ, which can be reached by a short bus ride (https://www.google.com/maps/dir/Moscone+Center/470+Alabama+St,+San+Francisco,+CA+94110/@37.7737857,-122.4268309,14z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m14!4m13!1m5!1m1!1s0x808580877d2fc9ad:0xd182ccc332c28697!2m2!1d-122.401557!2d37.784173!1m5!1m1!1s0x808f7e3074359e0f:0x710aa5eaaf53cd94!2m2!1d-122.412559!2d37.763261!3e3) from Moscone.

  • CocoaKucha 4 with Motion#inspect

    Fort Mason

    We're running another Cocoa Kucha! This time we've pulled together an awesome collection of talented people based in San Francisco, along with a couple of visitors down for WWDC. Cocoa Kucha 4 is generously hosted by HipByte (http://www.hipbyte.com/) after their RubyMotion #inspect conference (http://www.rubymotion.com/conference/2014/), which is just days before WWDC kicks-off. Like with the other Kuchas, this meetup is in the style of Pecha Kucha (http://www.pechakucha.org/faq) where there are 8 speakers doing short talks related to Objective-C for 6 minutes and 20 seconds. The speaker must go though 20 slides, 20 seconds per slide. This keeps them to the point and makes it a lot easier for people to get started. • Andy Arvanitis - @andyarvanitis • Delisa Mason - @kattrali • Kyle Fuller - @kylefuller • Eloy Durán - @alloy • Leonard Grey - @speednoise • Marin Usalj - @_supermarin • Michele Titolo - @micheletitolo • Sam Soffes - @soffes Code of Conduct (http://cocoapods.org/legal)
